Canadians Among Nominees For 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards

ihrma

Canada’s Justin Bieber, Drake, The Weeknd, Daniel Caesar, Tate McRae and Shawn Mendes are among the nominees announced Thursday for the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Bieber, Drake and The Weeknd are competing with Ed Sheeran and Lil Nas X for Male Artist of the Year (an award The Weeknd won in 2021). The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” is nominated for Music Video of the Year.

“Stay,” Bieber’s collaboration with The Kid LAROI, and his track “Peaches” featuring Caesar as and Giveon are both nominated for Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Music Video of the Year. (“Stay” is also up for TikTok Bop of the Year.)

Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy” ft. Future & Young Thug is up for Hip-Hop Song of the Year and the rapper is vying for Hip-Hop Artist of the Year. Certified Lover Boy is, rather oddly, nominated for Best Comeback Album.

McRae, up for Best New Pop Artist, shares a Dance Song of the Year nomination with Regard and Troye Sivan for their collaboration, “You,” and she has a Cover Song of the Year nom for her version of Conan Gray’s “Heather.”

Mendes’ take on Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” is also vying for Cover Song of the Year.

Artists with multiple nominees include Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Silk Sonic, Ariana Grande, BTS and Måneskin.

The iHeartRadio Music Awards, which recognize the most-played artists and songs on iHeartRadio stations and the app – and the top choices in several fan-voted categories – are scheduled to be handed out March 22 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
